Signs of spring

As I was going out for what I call my "long run" around the lake, I really took the time to take it all in. A weeks ago there was 2 feet of snow freshly fallen and now there is nothing but slop. Sign of spring :)

I noticed the small of the lake, the melting of the lake with the "out of their mind" ice fisherman still out there. Note again...Sign of spring :)

I rounded the corner and the small of warm blacktop roasting in the sun hit me. I love that smell. Sign of spring :)

The fresh air blowing on my too warmly dressed self realizing that I WAY overdressed for this run. There were kids playing outside with shorts. Sign of spring :)

This coming weekend and week for that matter we are going to experince the warmest days of the year so far. Calling for the high 50's! Wednesday I will be bringing the bike to work that day for a lunchtime ride if it doesn't rain. Sign of spring :)

Knowing that a lot of outside stuff will start happening on a regular basis just gets me ready to bike and run outside for the sheer enjoyment of it. Training will be a secondary benefit at least for now.

YES! 50 tomorrow too! Get some miles in and enjoy them. For the shear sake of moving outside.

My favorite sign of spring is the return of the robins. I could have swore I saw a small flock of them in a crab apple tree the other night, but in the shadows it was hard to know for sure. Any robins in Madison yet?
